Sadly, one of our lovely volunteers Loraine Stephens passed away recently. She was a very popular and hard working member of the team on site.
She got to know our trainees well and worked with them on many projects but in particular crafts such as Christmas card making. One time she brought her guitar along and they all had a sing-song to Beatles songs.
People like Loraine are what make Earthworks special. She gave up her free time to help others but thoroughly enjoyed it as well and she brought her love of gardening with her and shared her knowledge. She encouraged our trainees and made friends with many of them. She brought her puppy, Rocky, to site to meet everyone and they are both missed very much.
Her husband, Kevin, has launched a campaign to bring greater awareness to Ovarian Cancer by setting up a JustGiving page. There is a lot more information on the page. You can find it at:
